    In a nutshell, a limp wrist absorbs much of the momentum from recoil, robbing the slide of the momentum it needs to cycle completely. Your wrist should remain rigid so that the moving slide is properly "braced" (for lack of a better term).

    Thanks David...I can say I was guilty of that.

    So have we come upon an answer for your original issue? Limp -wristing was the cause of your failures?

    You've done the initial firing...give it a good cleaning...get back to the range...grip tightly...you'll be just fine.

    l've gone through two new Glocks in the last year.

    OMO

    Stay armed...good cleaning, firm grip...stay safe!

    Yeah, what he said. A loose grip will allow the hand to move and exert just enough upward pressure to move the slide stop. This is the number one cause of this type of stoppage.

    It's looking that way Ram Rod. Last night's practice shooting pretty much revealed that if I held my wrist in a much more firm manor that the slide would work properly. I was able to fire off about 15 rounds without a glitch.

    thanks for your help by the way

    I have a gunshop owner friend who supplies LEO depatments with Glocks. He told me when a department picks up their order, he goes to the range with them for initial indoctrination. He is also a certified Glock armorer. He tells me They NEVER clean the Glocks before use and in all the orders he's placed, has never had a problem.
    On the other hand, CZ handguns are literally dripping and oozing oil and grease and really NEED to be cleaned before firing.
